Of course if you need the big aperature, you need it. But with the
excellent high ISO performance of modern cameras I find them less and
less necessary. A couple of fast primes for indoor events will go a
long ways and can be left at home when not needed.

Faster lens means faster and more precise AF, and manual focusing is also much easier. Especially, when light is far from perfect.

If I could, I'd have a set of primes (14, 35, 50, 85, 135, 200, 400mm, 180 macro), and 3 f/2.8 zooms (16-35, 24-70, 700-200) to choose from. But I can't, and find zooms serving me better at the moment.
I tried some 4.0 zooms (24-105 and 70-200 IS), and do not see it handy for me.
